Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) Review


When we think of Samsung, it's usually the flagships like the Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 5 that immediately come to mind. However, it's not really these flashy and expensive models that sell by the buckets. Rather, it's the less design- and...

Pleasant design ; Fine display ; Surprisingly good camera

Underwhelming specs and performance ; Dated Android build ; No fingerprint scanner

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is a smartphone of reasonably good quality. It looks elegant and its screen is fairly pleasant. Its software experience is well-accomplished and its camera can land surprisingly good shots. While the Galaxy J5 (2016) does...

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) review


The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016 Edition) is a mid-range smartphone with premium design and a good spread of features. We draw your attention to its superb AMOLED HD screen, exceptional battery life, Android Marshmallow, 16GB of memory and 2GB of RAM. The...

Samsung has built the Galaxy J5 2016 on a very solid platform. The original J5 was a very sound all-round performer, priced competitively, and the new J5 brings improved build quality and some selective performance tweaks. Asked by Jeanette Price from...

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) Review: In Depth


Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) Review: One of Samsung's latest budget mobiles, the J5 is a rival to the Moto G & a solid smartphone for just £150 SIM-free.

Solid battery life ; Strong display for the price ; Decent cameras

Old Android

At this price, the Galaxy J5 is a very strong rival for the Moto G and other cut-price handsets. It's a solid all-rounder, offering dependable performance and excellent battery life as well as some brilliant camera tech. We prefer the vanilla Android...

Samsung Galaxy J5 2016


Not worth the buy

Respectable camera ; Display does well with colours

Highly underpowered ; Display resolution is low ; Uninspiring design

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is not the smartphone you should buy. It is quite underpowered compared to other offerings in the market, doesn't have a fingerprint sensor, and its pros don't outweigh the cons. The compromise isn't worth Samsung's brand...

Samsung Galaxy J5 review: A cracking budget handset


The Samsung Galaxy J5 is a real surprise package, giving the mighty Moto G a run for its money

It’s a shame to end on the slight downer of the camera because it’s the only area where the Samsung Galaxy J5 puts a foot wrong as far as I’m concerned. Usually, when I’ve reviewed a budget handset, I’m extremely eager to get back to my own phone, but...
